  • PLEASE FOLLOW THE RETROIST

When most people think of Jon Pertwee they rightfully think of his 1970 – 1974 run as the third Doctor in the Doctor Who television series or perhaps his 18 year gig as Chief Petty Officer Pertwee on the BBC Radio series, The Navy Lark. But did you know he also used his comedic talents to help demonstrate how the radio itself evolved throughout the years thanks to vacuum tubes/valves in a short film?

    There’s also Worzel Gummidge, where he played a living scarecrow.

    Indeed, Drahken. I’ve also heard he was buried with a Worzel Gummidge toy, he liked playing the character that much.
